Bilharziasis in the Awash valley. III. Epidemiological studies in the Nura era, Abadir, Melka Sadi and Amibara irrigation schemes


, : Bilharziasis in the Awash valley. III. Epidemiological studies in the Nura era, Abadir, Melka Sadi and Amibara irrigation schemes. Ethiopian Medical Journal 15(4): 161-168

The prevalence of Schistosoma mansoni infections in migrant farm labourers and in locally-born pastoral populations and the occurrence of host snail populations in 4 irrigation schemes in Ethiopia are described and compared. 7.6 and 14.6% of farm labourers and pastoralists, respectively, were infected in Abadir; 6.3 and 14.8% in Nura Era; 2.1 and 0.0% in Melka Sadi; and 3.7 and 0.0% in Amibara.
